Penny Black Saturday Challenge...July

Hi folks...it's the first Saturday of July and that means it's time to hop over to Penny Black Saturday for this month's challenge...hang onto your galluses folks...it's
CHRISTMAS IN JULY
well it's never too early to make a start on filling up your Christmas Card Box...after all...that magical time of the year has a habit of sneaking up on us



As always there are fabulous prizes from our generous sponsors and gorgeous inspiration from my fellow teamies so it's time for you to look out your Christmas Penny Blacks and join in the fun.
I pulled out all the stops yesterday in the "paint a door a day" marathon so that I could watch the Djokovic/Del Potro match and wow what a match...probably the best and most exciting 5 sets of tennis ever followed by another nail biter with my fellow countryman through to the final...well done Andy. Can't wait to be honest...it's guaranteed to be another cracker of a match...could this be Andy's year and it goes without saying...it certainly won't be a painting day...that's for sure.
I'm off to The Papeterie this morning for the Sue Wilson Demo Day with my "temporary member of staff helping out" hat on...see you all tomorrow.
Hugs Kath xxx
